Wang Dewei (1926-1984, Shanghai) taught himself drawing in his youth. After he joined the revolution in 1938, he participated in the publication of various illustrated books for children, and created blockprints, cartoons and propaganda pieces. In 1950, he transferred to the East China (Shanghai) branch of the Central Art Academy to teach and do research. He graduated from the Oil Painting Refresher Course taught by Konstantin Maksimov at the Central Art Academy in 1957. Later, he became a Professor and Academy Chancellor at the Zhejiang Art Academy.

Some of Wang's socialist realist oil paintings have been included in the collections of the Museum of the Chinese Revolution and the China Art Gallery.
